People invited to SNH reception in Dumfries

Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) is inviting everyone in the area to an informal reception in Dumfries, to find out more about the challenges of managing our natural environment.

SNH is the Scottish Government's advisor on the management, enjoyment, understanding and sustainable use of Scotland's nature and landscape.

Ian Ross, SNH’s recently appointed chairman, will be your host, together with chief executive, Ian Jardine and area manager, Chris Miles.

Ian Ross said: “The afternoon will give you the opportunity to have an informal discussion with us about our work in the area, find out what we do and why, and raise issues about the natural environment which are of interest to you. It’s also an opportunity for you to let us know what you think about our work and our organisation, and shape our future plans. We certainly hope many people will be able to come along and we look forward to meeting them.”

The reception is being held at the Cairndale Hotel in Dumfries, from 4pm to 6pm, on Monday 23 June. It’s free to attend and light refreshments will be provided. However, places are limited so booking is advisable. For more information or to book a place, call 01387 272440 or email .
